Artful.. I don't know to which extent those extensions apply in 19.04. 
There *were* changes in 19.04, and the package I mentioned should be 
installed as any other package, i.e.

sudo apt install gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons

(it does not exist in releases before 19.04)

If you find that that package was not already installed, I recommend 
that you also do:

sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop

Let's wait with that until you have tried the above.
